George’s Street Arcade is a kind of shopping mall / indoor market. A unique place in Dublin that looks like no other. Opened since 1881, (originally under the name of South City Markets), the place is still active today. A perfect place to hunt, shop and find the original souvenir to bring back from your exploration of Dublin!

Here, small and large stores are rubbing shoulders… From Dunnes Stores to small stalls, selling everything from haute couture and accessories to trendy and funky clothes, from custom silver to costume jewelry, from hairdressing to fortune telling… Not to mention the stores that cater to lovers of music, art, books, specialty ornaments, souvenirs, stamps and coin collections, coffee shops, general grocery and specialty foods.

As you can see, George’s Street Arcade is a special place that brings together vendors of all categories. That’s what makes it so charming!

The atmosphere here is great: it’s crowded everywhere, the vendors are friendly and make the effort with strangers… The young people of Dublin walk there, just like the older Dubliners… All this in a warm and friendly environment, conducive to human contact. We discover all kinds of products, we taste unsuspected culinary wonders… In short: this market is an opportunity to plunge into an exciting multi-cultural universe. Deeply Irish and open to the world and other cultures from around the globe.

Prefer to go there during the off-peak period: the market does not empty before lunchtime and in the afternoon. Sometimes it may be a little too crowded to get around easily. Prefer the morning for those allergic to crowds.
